Traffic wardens are 'very active' in Lyme Regis, says county councillor
LYME'S county councillor has defended traffic wardens after town councillors called for more presence in the town.
Col Geoff Brierley told members of Lyme Regis Town Council at a meeting last week that wardens concentrate their efforts on enforcing residents' parking permits.
In January town councillors called for 'more appropriate cover' from traffic wardens after increasing incidents of dangerous and illegal parking over Christmas and New Year.
Col Brierley said the parking enforcement officers make sure that the two residents' parking streets - Anning Road and King's Way - are patrolled.
He said: “They pay a fee in order to have residents' parking, therefore it's one of the key areas they go to.
“They are quite active.
“It can be obstruction and if it is, it's not a matter for the county council. I'm not passing the buck, but it is for the police.”
